Sun City's Neighborhood Realtor


Hello:  I am Michael Braxton and I am “Sun City’s Neighborhood Realtor.”

For ten years, I’ve had a deep connection to this Sun City Vistoso Active Adult Community – in fact, I hand-picked this neighborhood for my own mother and bought her a house here. I’ll be retiring in SCOV myself someday but in the meantime, I am 100% dedicated to the Sun City Oro Valley community, my neighbors here and unparalleled lifestyle SCOV offers. I’ve toured all of the 46 floor plans in the neighborhood and always preview every new listing as soon as it becomes available. The strong relationships I have created, and the power of networking is so instrumental in helping to making sure my clients are the first to know of new activity and upcoming listings - often before they even hit the market. 

Prompt service and authentic, genuine care my clients is my #1 priority. I recently had the pleasure of working with a lovely client who bought a place in Sun City and the home needed quite a bit of work. As she is a widow and is a little older, she was unable to handle the complete renovation herself. Throughout the summer, I am overseeing the remodel for her; sending her photo updates while she is in Wisconsin with family, ensuring the project is moving along for her and hopefully providing peace of mind for her.

My friends have said that I’m an authentic, real and brutally honest person. One of my friends actually suggested my tag line … “the most authentic REALTOR® in Arizona.” I use it on all my emails. I’m also the guy who can make stuff happen - I’ve never had the patience to just “wait and see.” Following every detail to ensure completion has always worked better for me. A go-getter mentality and work ethic served me very well in my previous career where I spent many years working in the entertainment industry, creating special events and fundraisers for major charities, involving Broadway shows that travel around the world. Ask me how to hook you up with good tickets to “Wicked” or “The Lion King!” After 25+ years of success in sales, customer service and client relationship experience, a career in real estate seemed like the most natural progression. The unmatched resources of Long Realty, plus the respect Long has earned over the last 90 years made it an easy decision. I considered other brokerages, but the combination of my skills magnified by Long Realty’s overwhelming local market share sealed the deal for me. I can now offer my clients the best possible advantage in today’s crazy real estate environment. Simply said, this is a perfect match!

When I am not finding buyers their next home or helping sellers prepare their home for sale, I love watching movies and going to live theatre events myself! I see lots of them and have very definite opinions when Oscar time rolls around. I also enjoy traveling when I have the time. So far, I have been to 71 countries and will soon visit #72 and #73. I love seeing new places and trying new and exciting food options! I once ate a fried cricket on a stick in Thailand (no, I don’t recommend it) – yuk.

Throughout my life, I’ve had a fascination with real estate – hell, I went to Open Houses just for the fun of it. All the experiences in my lifetime have led me to this career. It has become very clear to me that Real Estate is my calling and that Sun City Oro Valley is my specialty and I look forward to helping you with your Sun City Oro Valley home.
